Lithuania

Our farm in Lithuania will be certified organic by 2023/24. This makes Pagiriai, which is its name, the farm where our goal to become synthetic pesticide-free has advanced furthest.

Location

Pagiriai lays between several large forests and have 42 hectares of dedicated, so-called environmental areas. It only takes 3 hours by car to travel from Pagiriai to our two farms in the neighbouring country, Latvia.

Production

More than 90% of the farm is arable, and we produce milling wheat, winter canola, milling rye, spring barley, sugar beets, fava beans, phacelia, clover and grass seeds. We are also conducting field trials with other crops and have a berry test plot at the farm.

More than organic

In 2020, when we started our 3-year journey to convert our Lithuanian farm to certified organic, we knew that it would be challenging, yet a natural step further up our own green alley.
